Consultation on the 2023 Global Education Monitoring (GEM) Report on Technology and Education during the 2nd Asia-Pacific Regional Education Ministers’ Conference, 18:00-19:00 (Bangkok time, GMT +7)
Lead organizer: UNESCO GEM Report / Supporting partner: SEAMEO
The 2023 GEM Report will examine issues of access, equity, and inclusion in education, looking at ways in which technology can help reach disadvantaged learners and ensure access to more engaging and cheaper formats of learning resources. It will explore three system-wide conditions that need to be met for any technology in education to reach its full potential: ensuring that all learners have access to technology resources, protecting learners from the risks of technology through appropriate governance and regulation, and supporting all teachers to teach, use and deal with technology effectively. A regional report on technology and education focusing on Southeast Asia in partnership with SEAMEO will also be produced. The event will include a presentation of the 2023 concept note by Manos Antoninis, director of the GEM Report followed by a discussion with Dr Ethel Agnes Pascua-Valenzuela, director of the SEAMEO Secretariat, with Ministers of Education and representatives from international organisations. The purpose of the event is to present the plans for the 2023 GEM Report and its regional edition in South east Asia, collect examples from the region that could be featured in the global and regional reports and forge partnerships to enhance advocacy activities.
